Photo: Jesus' Tomb Claim Slammed By Scholars



Israel Antiquities Authority curator Debora Benami stands on February 27, 2007, among dozens of ossuaries—or burial boxes—found over the years in Jerusalem. The artifacts are housed in a storage warehouse in Bet Shemesh, Israel.

Archaeologists and religious scholars have slammed a new movie's claim that ossuaries found in a Jerusalem tomb held the remains of Jesus, his wife, and their son.
